Wouldn't it be great to season your food without adding a lot of fat or salt? Try adding onions. Their lively flavor ranges from sharp to sweet and they enhance many dishes plus provide a nutritional boost.   There are many different onion varieties on the market. Yellow onions are the most common and readily available year-round. The yellow onion has a sharp flavor, thick skin and low moisture content. They can be kept for many weeks in a cool, dry place.  If stored correctly, most onions will keep up to 2 months.

While I have previously listed beef skewers or city chicken recipes, this recipe is taking the simple beef kabob to the next level of flavor.   By incorporating a flavorful wine as the marinade for your vegetables and meat, you get loads of flavor and a deliciously simple meal that is ready in less than an hour. For this recipe, you want to get some really nice sirloin or rib eye. You don't need top-of-the-line filet mignon, but high-quality cuts certainly add to the tenderness and flavor of the finished dish.

With spring in full swing, this recipe makes you think of a lazy Saturday brunch, a fresh pot of hot coffee and a few bites of hashbrown potatoes and grilled country sausage.   What brings unique flavor to this quiche is Dunbarton Blue cheese. It's a wonderfully flavorful, cheddar-style cheese with delicious veins of blue cheese running throughout.  It can be grated or sliced, and goes equally well served on a sandwich or blended into mashed potatoes. — Scott C.

Research shows that eating less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium (about 1 teaspoon of salt) per day may reduce the risk of high blood pressure. Hypertension or high blood pressure is sometimes called the "silent killer" because people can't feel high blood pressure. Although there are some signs or symptoms of hypertension, they are easily overlooked. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that Americans reduce their daily sodium consumption to less than 2,300 milligrams.

“You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream” or at least that’s what Caroline Holmes is hoping Greencastle folks will chant later this month.

While visiting her cousin in Connecticut, she entered a Create a Flavor, Change the World contest at Ashley’s Ice Cream shop there.

Hagerstown native Bill Kendle, 63, has never been a man to shy away from the kitchen. "Since my wife and I have been together I've done about 95 percent of the cooking," he said during a telephone interview from his home in Greenbackville, Va. Kendle and his wife of 18 years, Beverly, moved to the town near Assateague and Chincoteague islands after he retired after 30 years with General Motors in Martinsburg, W.Va. In 1995, his family doctor diagnosed Kendle as being a diabetic.

andrewm@herald-mail.com There's nothing vanilla about Erik Bennett.

Recipes and photo from Filippo Berio Olive Oil In the past decade, we have learned more about the flavor and the added health benefits of olive oil. No longer is olive oil only associated with Italian cuisine. It has become a staple in many American kitchens and restaurants - whether used in cooking, as a light oil for salads and vegetables or a richly flavored alternative to butter for bread. While we have come to appreciate the flavor and health benefits, many of us don't realize the rich tradition behind each bottle of Italian olive oil. [cont.

Herbs and spices can play an important role in your kitchen. They enhance the flavor of many foods and can help reduce the amount of salt/sodium in your diet. Herbs are the fresh or dried leaves of plants while spices are the ground seeds, bark or stems of the plant. Herbs and spices do not add fat and they are very low in calories. If you follow a recipe it will usually guide you as to how much of which herb and spice to add. Some recipes include herbs and spices and give the amount to use. However, learning to use herbs and spices will help you enhance other foods and recipes you prepare.

Fruit takes on a whole new flavor when kissed by fire and flame.  Once the subtle sweetness caramelizes on the surface of the fruit, it makes for a delicious treat ready for dessert or a sweet side with your favorite grilled protein. I'm going to take baby steps in grilling, going from an easy recipe and building up to more complex recipes featuring sauces to accompany the tender, grilled fruit.  As always, feel free to make the recipe your own by adding your own fruit to the mix. - Scott C.

With the onset of spring comes fresh, new ingredients as the ground awakens from winter and gets ready for the summer harvest.  By incorporating skim milk, chicken base (found in 1 pound tub of concentrated chicken in powder or solid form) and cornstarch you cut back on the amount of fat in the dish but keep the flavor. You can substitute chicken bouillon if you do not have any chicken base, but read the ingredients and make sure the first ingredient listed is chicken, not fat, sugar or salt.

I am a changed man. A more open-minded man. Fifteen months ago, I had a conversion experience. Just before the big Halloween snow in 2011, my wife, Yolanda, told me she was going to eat a gluten-free, grain-free diet for 30 days. When I heard these words, I kept my face placid, but inside, my food-loving heart of hearts was doing an imitation of "The Scream. " You see, we generally eat as a family, and when two of the kids went vegetarian, we all ate vegetarian, by and large. That was OK - food was still flavorful.

Avocados and good cheeses make this sandwich a standout. With the beautiful avocados in my fridge, I needed to come up with another reason to serve their creamy goodness. When the avocados have just reached the peak of ripeness, it's hard to resist the urge to eat one right out of its skin. This sandwich is a marriage of flavors and states. I took California avocados and two Wisconsin cheeses, and brought them together on a fresh, whole-wheat bread, grilled with garlic olive oil and thin slices of red onion for color and snap.
